More than just a guide, the Handbook of Technical Writing places writing in a real-world context with quick access to hundreds of technical writing topics and scores of sample documents and visuals. Its dedicated author team — with decades of combined academic and professional experience — has created a comprehensive reference tool for students and professionals alike.

The authors include an essay on five steps to successful writing and numerous samples of technical writing and graphics. Spiral wire binding. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
